World’s No.1 tennis player Novak Djokovic of Serbia praised Russia’s Daniil Medvedev as one of ‘the top players of the world,’ according to a statement posted on the official website of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) early on Thursday.
Axar.az reports that late on Wednesday night, Medvedev defeated Djokovic in the second round match of the 2020 ATP Finals group stage in straight sets, booking the victory of 6-3; 6-3 in just 81 minutes.
"Well, I was, to be honest [not feeling well] a little bit, especially towards the end of the first set, beginning of the second," the official ATP website quoted the 33-year-old Serbian tennis star as saying after his match with Medvedev.
"I cannot allow these things to happen when you're playing one of the top players of the world," Djokovic continued. "He was just better, no question about it… He's serving tremendously well, moving great."
